Transcript

There are all sorts of plans swirling around san diego for the water front downtown. Apart from the idea catapulted into the mix over the weekend by the U-T San Diego to build a stadium by what is now the t10th Avenue Marine Terminal- there is more methodical progress being made on a possible convention center expansion. We discuss the city council voted to move ahead with a strategy that could fund it.

So what ever happened to the north embarcadero visionary plan? It seems like we hear about these grand visions, then the focus moves on to something else. I'd really like to see the n. embarcadero get off the ground, it's mostly landscaping and moving the road back so we can access the bay, you would think the city could at least handle THAT.
